4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Students graduating in my field generally have a great reputation among the schools in this area of the nation. Student teachers sometimes go all the way to Utah, and they still maintain a great reputation. One thing that makes me skeptical is that the education program is not competitive at all, and as such some people receive their degree who never should have.

Athletics: Brigham Young University-Idaho does not have varsity sport teams. I transferred here from Utah State University where sports teams were a major part of my college experience, and I really miss that. I've thought about joining an intramural team but I'm not sure how comfortable I would be in playing - I just want to watch and be involved and have school pride!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy going to school at BYU-Idaho. The campus is beautiful, the classes are great, and the teachers will generally bend over backwards to make sure you have the tools necessary to succeed in your field. At least, within my field that's how they are. I am LDS, so going to an LDS centered school is wonderful because many aspects of my religion are tied into the curriculum. It makes it easy for me to feel my spiritual knowledge growing as well as my intellectual knowledge. My one main complaint, which isn't something that the school itself can change, is the attitude of much of the student population. It has been challenging for me to find friends that are mature, outgoing, relaxed, and focused and who are willing to expand their friend group. I feel that many people I meet are the opposite of one or all of those things.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are knowledgeable and helpful. The courses are put together well, and there are many options. One definite plus is the amount of smaller classes, and the professors are easy to get a hold of as well.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's extremely safe. The extremely religious culture plays a huge part in that.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I didn't know what to expect when I first arrived on campus. However, it's been better than I could have imagined. The curriculum is challenging yet doable, the teachers are excellent, and the students are very friendly.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall I love my school. I love that everyone has the same values as I do, and the courses are challenging as well. It is an amazing and uplifting atmosphere for anyone that comes here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is always trying to help us gain internships and make networking connections so we can find careers someday in the fields that we desire.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I trust almost everybody on this campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: All of my values that I grew up with are here on campus, and it is nice going to school with people who believe in the same things as me.

4 College Junior

Athletics: There is a good competitive spirit here. Everyone is friendly, but everyone also wants to win. There are many students who participate in intramural here, especially since there are no varsity sports.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is great overall. Sometimes I feel like I am still in high school while I have been attending my university, but overall it is one of the best places on earth to be.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the school I attend at this time, Brigham Young University Idaho. It is a private university. I love the spirit that is there at Rexburg where the school resides. Everyone there is open and fun! The professors care for my individual needs. There has been a few cases where I was behind in my classes due to unplanned obstacles or struggles I was dealing with. I was able to explain my concerns to my professors and they were very understanding. Some even let me turn things in later or redo assignments for full to partial credit. I love the atmosphere there. Everything is fun and inviting!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: If you have ever been to rexburg you would understand this isn't an issue.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BYU-Idaho offers excellent programs with internships. Most majors require an internship and BYU-idaho has many connenctions to some of the top companies in the world. They offer a lot of great opportunities to find a career field to study as well as applying for interships, jobs, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall housing location to the campus is probably the best out of most universities. Most students are within walking distance of campus. The worst option are that there isn't much air conditioning in a lot of the apartments which makes it tough in the summer times.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is no varsity team, which I feel like lacks school spirit across campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Just like at any school, you have to be willing to put the work in for the grade you want to receive. At BYU-Idaho professors are very in-line with the university being a Disciple Preparation Center, which means leading by example. There are plenty of opportunities to serve, teach others and to be involved on campus. Its been a great place to learn, grow, and be challenged for life's opportunities.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Like I said before I really like my school but I really don't like the area. Lots of classes, tons anything you could think of. Most of the professors are very laid back.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: They really work hard to make sure you have connections within the school. This way you can get a good internship and move on from there.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: They have emergency phone lines everywhere, especially in areas less populated.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The on campus housing is very poor. You have to sign up pretty early to get appropriate housing and the prices are typically high.

1 College Junior

Athletics: Because they don't really have popular varsity spots. I was hesitant to even attend when I found out that they didn't have a varsity football team.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school and the professors, however I hate the location.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My class sizes are small, and the classes are interesting and I learn a lot, even if the course work isn't the most difficult. The professors care about the students, and religion is a large part of all of the classes here.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

BYU-Idaho professors and other students take a lot of interest in students personally, to help them achieve their academic goals and improve their overall well-being. They care about how you do in classes, what you have to contribute to the school, and what you're doing besides school to enhance your lifelong learning. The BYU-I experience really becomes what the students make it. Students who just study to get by learn to do the bare minimum with the least amount of effort, and students who want to make the most of their education and learn and grow from being a student work longer and harder in a variety of pursuits that span beyond academics.

It may be hard to believe that there are so many opportunities to develop skills in a given area from attending a little school in Rexburg, Idaho. But just as BYU-Idaho takes huge steps in innovating learning and maximizing resources, students learn to be innovative hard-workers who know how to problem-solve and communicate effectively. Most students who realize the potential they have in being admitted to this school and who take advantage of the opportunities offered here quickly learn how to make their BYU-Idaho experience worthwhile.
